Texas State University, San Marcos
Twenty-four boxes of materials in this collection relate to the writing career of Sam Shepard. The largest series of material is the first, Works, which include drafts of Shepard's plays, novels, short stories, films, and critical reviews. This series is notable in that Shepard meticulously identified each annotated draft with a date and place (by city and state) of each revision, and there tend to be multiple drafts of each work represented. The subseries for Plays is the largest of this group, ranges from 1969-1999, and includes notes, annotated typescripts, playbills, programs, correspondence, sound recordings, rehearsal schedules, reviews, and publicity. The Notebooks and Correspondence, particularly the Joseph Chaikin and Johnny Dark letters, also lend insight into Shepard's creative process. The Interviews series includes a taped conversation between Bob Dylan and Sam Shepard (ca. mid 1980s to early 1990s)
